Windows 10

Need to transfer from your old computer to your new computer? In this article, we’ll see exactly how to do that: transfer from old PC to new PC, including applications, settings profiles, accounts, settings, passwords, emails, favorites and all files.

This approach works even if the two computers are very different, such Dell to HP, Windows 10 to Windows 11, desktop to laptop and so on. Plus, it is automatic, so you don’t need to be a computer guru to transfer from old computer to new computer.

A proper transfer must include the 3 main types of content on your computer:

  • Files, such documents, pictures, music, pictures and emails
  • Settings, such as user profiles, emails, accounts, passwords, favorites, bookmarks, wallpaper and other personalization
  • Applications, such as transferring Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, Quickbooks, TurboTax, Firefox, Chrome, and other programs to the new computer

We will of course be covering all of the above, so that once the transfer is done, your new computer looks and works just like the old computer. The “How do I transfer from my old computer to my new computer?” question finally has an answer.
